polls show president obama and romney running neck-and-neck, there are signs that the momentum may be shifting. it could have something to do with how americans view the candidates. look at this daily tracking poll showing the president's approval rating plunging. losing 7 points in a few days. quite a jump. david hawkins from cq roll call daily briefing joins us. >> good morning. >> seven points. that's a big difference, more than we've seen in a while. how much weight do you place in the poll? >> it happened this spring. to be honest i'm skeptical of this poll. gallup, as you may know, seems to have been tracking a little bit more negative towards the president and positive towards romney than all the other polls. it is also what -- it's interesting that there doesn't seem to be a reason why, in that one week, which started the morning of the debates and goes until friday, what about the job performance caused a swoon. potentially after the debate he became a full-time candidate so maybe people said he should do things more presidential. who knows, maybe his reaction to the storm
states a tougher challenge for romney. obama campaign officials argue polls of early voters in battleground states suggest their bank of obama votes means romney will have to win on election day well more than half the votes in key states to win. but the president is not relying solely on early voting or even on this new rekindled bipartisan pitch. in this state alone, diane, president obama and his allies have run 16,000 more ads than romney and his allies. and if that's not enough for you, on monday, president obama will be back here in ohio with bruce springsteen. diane? >> okay, thank you, jake. >>> and also tonight, the latest in our brand new daily abc news/"washington post" polls. tonight, the poll gives mitt romney a one-point edge. so, we asked abc's david muir to tell us his strategy for the final sprint. >> reporter: mitt romney bolting through the battlegrounds. today, on the campaign plane, it was the candidate taking pictures. romney capturing images of his staff sneaking a nap, as romney faces to the finish. in just the last 24 hours, virginia -- >> virginia,
polls in three states that were traditionally democrats leaning obama, and president obama won in 2008: pennsylvania, minnesota, and michigan. michigan, of course, is romney's native state and polls suggest obama has the lead but mitt romney has closed the gap to the margin of error. obama campaigns scoffs at this and senior obama advisor axelrod said if they lost any of those he would shave off his mustache of 40 years but mitt romney has considered headed there a sign they think the plafield is expanding beyond the seven states that have been hotly contested and present the romney campaign opportunity to put obama on defense and have the offense ease the path to 270. very, very close, six days left, polls suggest everything is tight and no way to know who has the edge. so, no time for napping, either. >>shepard: i was hoping you got a nap while everyone else was working. >>carl: not a chance. romney is staying busy. >>shepard: thank you, carl cameron. massive gridlock around new york city, 4.3 million people use the subways and there is no subway. commuters returned to work and many
there have been seven polls. all of them have suggested that mr. obama is up within the margin of error by a couple of points on mitt romney. most scenarios, romney can't win without winning here in florida as well as without ohio. so, one of the schools of thought is that the romney camp is trying to hedge against a possible defeat in ohio by expanding the battlefield or trying to into those three blue states. the obama campaign isn't buying it. as we head into the final six days it's very clear it's going to go right down to the wire with anybody's guess in some of the battleground states in the quest for 270 electoral votes. national polls s. tied as is some of those battleground states even with the margin of error. shep? >> shepard: carl cammeron in jacksonville florida tonight. little relief for air travelers coming in and out of the nation's airspace after sandy. earlier today two of new york's airports reopened on a limited basis. jfk and newark liberty international across the river in jersey. port authority which runs all the airports is urging folks to call airlines for infor
obama got back to the campaign trail today. initial opinion polls appear to give high marks for the president's handling of the storm crisis with even republican voters praising his quick response. >> for more, let's turn now to our representative who was in new york for the storm and is now following cleanup efforts. massive destruction in the region, but from what you've seen, how are new yorkers coping? >> i have just been to a neighborhood in brooklyn where the storm has been really hitting hard the people there. they were just desperate. some were crying. when you walk through the streets, you could see post a snap into the houses by the wind and water. it is terrible. people try to clean up their things. you can see furniture living outside, the couches, tv's, clothes. everything has been destroyed, and people just do not know what to do. it will take a long time to clean up. some cops are even stationed at gas stations because there have been fights. there is a--- a gas shortage. some parts still did not have any electricity. >> sounds very frustrating and overwhelmin
romney sees the polls shifting to obama in nevada and not mitt romney. pennsylvania, he is going, and wisconsin we are there, where the polls have narrowed and wisconsin because of paul ryan's addition to the ticket. that is a state they did not expect to have a shot. pennsylvania is a key player if you believe their calendar and spending and decision to go there. it would potentially help out if it went wrong in ohio, the romney campaign still says they are confident they can pull it off in ohio but recognize that president obama got steam there the last couple of days, so, pennsylvania could be part of a replacement strategy combined, perhaps, with ohio and colorado. ohio is always central to the victory central joy and he is doing a lot of scrambling and it could be a contingency plan but when the polls get this close with a lot of money lying around, spend it. >>shepard: why not. the obama campaign and mike emanuel is with the president near columbus ohio. we her from the president on job creation. how is he going after governor romney today? >>reporter: he says there are sig
. and mitt romney led in zero of those polls. there were two ties and obama led in 17. that's not what we were seeing two weeks ago where romney pulled ahead in virginia and colorado and florida and had drown ohio down to a one-point lead. if anything, obama has momentum. he was declared the winner of the final two debates. i'm not sure how the hurricane is playing for him, but his numbers ticked up. that's why the states that seem toss uppy seem like they are more firmly in the president's favor. >> let me ask you, and i didn't warn you i was going to ask you this, but you have been the subject of a lot of criticism in this last week in particular as if the polling model that you built at "the new york times" and the way you explain the polling is somehow biassed or wrong or evil. i feel like you are waging a one-man war against e pneumonia rossty in explaining how polling works. how has the week been? >> it's been a trip where you become a subject of conversation yourself and there's this celebrity level attached to it that's new for me e. but there are other websites that do the same t
actually makes sense. checking the facts is easy to do. look at the polls in pennsylvania. there have been two dozen polls in pennsylvania since august first. of those two dozen polls, of those 24 polls, how many does president obama lead in? 24 of the 24. every single one. and look at the rest of mr. romney's campaign schedule. he's taking the one trip to pennsylvania that republicans always take. but other than that, he was in ohio and wisconsin today. he was scheduled to be in new hampshire, iowa and colorado in the final days. and he just spent the last couple days in florida and virginia. that means the map is not expanding. no the if you can't afford to walk away from any battle ground states. he's still flogging it out where he has to win. all of this we're going to win stuff is a fake out, it's a bluff, it's trash talk. and there's nothing wrong with it. it happens every year. you should know it's a dependable part of the end of presidential campaigns. but every once in awhile at the end of a presidential campaign, this expected faint, this attempt at a fake out that everybody know
by president obama where the polls have always trended towards democrats this year. not towards mr. romney and the g.o.p. pennsylvania, minnesota, and michigan. romney's home state. in the last few days, there have been a handful of polls that the gap has narrowed and romney made ground and come within the margin of error in those states and now he has begun to advertise. these are states the obama campaign is very very confident about. david action sell rod said he would shave his mustache off if he lost any of them. that's a staches has had for 40 years. tough hurdle for mr. romney to clear in ohio. in the last 48 hours or so there have been seven polls. all of them have suggested that mr. obama is up within the margin of error by a couple of points on mitt romney. most scenarios, romney can't win without winning here in florida as well as without ohio. so, one of the schools of thought is that the romney camp is trying to hedge against a possible defeat in ohio by expanding the battlefield or trying to into those three blue states. the obama campaign isn't buying it. as we head into the
. >>> with just six days to go to the election, president obama is showing a boost in swing state polling while mitt romney's campaign is expanding its battleground and claiming momentum. is mark matthews is is here now to sort out the two differ iting visions of how the race is shaping up in the final days. >> three new polls out of the all-important swing state of ohio giving barack obama a three to five-point lead in each of the polls. at the same time, mitt romney's campaign is buying ads in pennsylvania and minnesota and michigan. states thought to be firmly in the blue state column. at his first rally in the aftermath of sandy, mitt romney steered clear of any direct attacks on the president. but it was clear the political winds are picking back up. >> i don't just talk about change, i actually have a plan to execute change and to make it happen. >> romney was joined by former are florida governor jeb bush who downplayed the president's role in responding to the storm. >> my experience in this emergency response business is that it is the low he cal level and state level that really matte
until election day. the real clear politics shows president obama with 47.4% in national polls, mitt romney has 47.3% the new york times 538 blog says that if the election were held today, the president would win 303 electoral votes and romney would win 235. 270 are needed to win the white house. the times blog gives the president an 81% chance of winning the election. romney has a 19% chance. and as of tonight, 25 million people have already voted but long lines are creating a serious situation in some parts of florida. yes, florida all over again. some people are waiting three hours or more to vote and we will be asking why governor rick scott in florida is refusing to extend hours as his predecessors have done. but we start with tonight's lead. the closer. just four days to go and president obama is sprinting to the finish line with a passionate pitch to ohio voters and he's doing so by dismantling governor romney's rationale in this race one line of the obama argument, i am the guy you know. >> after four years as president, you know me. you may not agree with every decision i've
for him to win the presidency. and right now polls show that president obama is holding onto a modest lead here in the buckeye state. president obama made three stops here on friday. and really what was a campaign all-out blitz, two of those stops, by the way, alex, were in counties that he lost back in 2008. he's hoping to kick off some of those working-class voters. he's doing it by the auto bailout. that is something that is widely popular here that, of course, mitt romney opposed. widely popular because one out of every eight ohioans has a connection to the auto industry. president obama also touting what he called an economy that is in recovery. he referenced friday's jobs report to do it. take a listen. >> in 2008 we were in the middle of two wars, and the worst economic crisis since the great depression. today our businesses have created nearly 5.5 million new jobs and this morning we learned the company's hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> president obama has a frenetic campaign today straight through election day today, alex. he will make s
poll showed obama leading romney by three points here, i interviewed govern nor both of them were dismissing public polling saying our models show that the turnout is going to favor republicans. republicans are more enthusiastic. but i went out this morning with some afl-cio organizers. people are talking about turnout. the obama campaign says they've contacted over 120 million vote ners all these battleground states. they have a larger and more sophisticated ground operation. so that's what going on in the end. it's going to come down to turnout. this is a base election. and that's what both campaigns are doing right now is getting their people to vote early, either the obama campaign is doing their famous souls to the polls push tomorrow morning after churches. that's what we're looking at now. >> peter doing some good reporting for us in clumus ohio. still to come, more on the race for the white house. we've got a lot more on the race for the white house. >>> we're also following the aftermath of the superstorm sandy, four days in a shelter with no shower. we're going to take y
foreign affairs, national security. even if your polls, president obama retains the advantage but it has been used to shrink it. just what you said. >> first of all, it has been shrunk by ordinary americans looking at the president's handling of the situation and, feeling that he is coming up way short and my comment about lookin this, i'm looking at this from the perspective of having been in the white house and i cannot imagine that at 4:05 in the afternoon the situation room got word of an attack on an american facility in benghazi they wouldn't have taken it to the president and the national security advisor and the president would not have been engaged and i take the president's word. >> thank you, karl, you said... >> chris: wait, let karl finish. >> blaming the -- >> juan, hold on, let karl finish. >> i did. >> no, he didn't. he didn't. >> no. >> chris: let him finish. >> if the president ordered the assistance beiven and none was given until well after 7 hours later. if the cia at the clan des type annex were told three times don't engage and we had men disregard the orders of th
washington post poll has president obama hanging on to a four-point lead. last month it was an eight point spread in virginia. in the buckeye state, a new ohio news poll has it dead even 49-49. any advantage the president had, five points, is now gone. on the trail yesterday mitt romney forced to change course his self because of the storm. after canceling three rallies in virginia, he teemed up with his running mate in ohio telling supporters only a ryan/romney could bridge the divide. >> we have to reach across the aisle. we have to find good democrats. democrats love america too. we have to reach across the aisle, find ways to bring in people from the other party, work together, collaborate, meet regularly and fight for the american people and we will. >> with democrats hammering mitt romney's opposition to the auto bailout especially in ohio, the republican candidate using a new ad to counter punch on what could be a decisive issue. >> who will do more for the auto industry? not barack obama. fact checkers concern his attacks on mitt romney are false. the truth? mitt romney has a i pla
to new polls showing president obama leading in swing states. up by six in iowa, up by five in ohio, and ahead in other key states, including new hampshire, be virginia, florida, wisconsin, colorado, and nevada. and today, a major endorsement coming from new york city's independent mayor michael bloomberg. no question, this is a close race but today in wisconsin the president went after one of the key points in governor romney's closing argument to voters. >> the closing weeks of this campaign, governor romney has been using all his talents as a salesman to dress up these very same policies that failed our country so badly. and he is offering them change. he's saying he's the candidate of change. well, let me tell you, wisconsin, we know what change looks like. and what the governor is offering sure ain't change. >> it sure ain't change. but governor romney is good at changing on every position and doing anything to win. on the trail, he's trying to sound warm and cuddly. he's now taking a soft attack. the new york times quoting him on the trail as saying, democrats love america, to
, this evening, shows president obama with a 2 percentage point lead in florida. 48% to 46%. the sunshine state's 29 electoral votes key to mitt romney's hopes. in ohio, that same poll shows president obama also up only 2 but two percentage points. 47% to 45%. in wisconsin where the president started his post-hurricane campaign today an abc news "wall street journal" maris poll has him up 49 to 46%. but governor romney is leading in colorado which is another state president obama visited today. the lead there is just one point, 47% to 46%. that's according to reuters ipso. back with us our three political junkies extraordinaire. pollster david herman, joe garifoli. from all of the polls, there were 29 polls that came out. you are the pollster. this momentum, is it baked in? >> the advantage obama has is baked in inn a lot of the states. i would be shocked to see romney take ohio. and if he can't take ohio, it is really hard to see what his path is. >> jennifer: virginia? >> i think obama takes virginia as well an
even though the polls shows obama slightly ahead by no means a safe margin. he does not have a strong lead anywhere. i think the romney campaign is really worried about ohio and that's why they suddenly turned up their visits in advertising in pennsylvania, michigan, minnesota, states they don't have much of a chance to carry but they need ohio insurance because so far even if the lead is very small ohio is looking pretty good for the president. >> you know, i'm glad bill brought that up because i was going to get to that in just a few minutes. ohio, governor romney hasn't led in a major poll in that state. right now you take an average of all the polls that look at the buckeye state, the president enjoys a lead there, some of those leads more substantial than others. is it at this point the buckeye state is it a wash for the governor? >> well, you know, i think he certainly had some trouble there gaining ground. he tried a new tactic over these last couple of days talking about the auto bailout, not a good look for him because of that op-ed that he wrote in 2008 titled let detroit go
. but the latest poll in pennsylvania shows obama 49 and romney 43. >> it's really about a five-point race and you can't make up five points in a week, especially because there's so much clutter on tv with all of the other candidates, it's hard to break through. if romney had gone on the air in pennsylvania the day after the first debate and stayed on the air at 5, $6 million a week for the four weeks, he might have had a chan of sneaking in. but he hasn't been in the state very much. ryan was in the state once. this buy for one week is truly a hail mary pass. what they figured out is that ohio is gone and they can't make the electoral map and that's why they are in michigan and pennsylvania and in minnesota. they've got to pull out one or two of those states to have a chance and i don't think they are going to pull out any of them. >> and you're correct, the race is 49/43. i was talking to one of the demographics. it's 49/43, a five-point gap. let me ask you this, maria, before we run out of time. the base of democratic party, women, minorities, are they energized, in your opinion, and will they
? the reality of history of polls is most of the time with a candidate with a lead as clear as obama has in ohio or wisconsin or invest 23nevada, t candidate wins and this is a reality. often thinking that the polls are close they often still end up going the way they're leaning. remember in wisconsin earlier, democrats thought this is going to be a close race. the polls said walker would win by 7. he did. and with that history in mind, you know, i'm inclined to think that obama's the favorite. that doesn't mean romney can't win but speaks to probability i think. >> don't let toure say you don't have passion. i can feel your passion. i can feel it through the camera. is minnesota in play? i've been hearing silly rumors it could be in play this year for romney. that doesn't sound right. >> i have always thought that minnesota should be in play. it's an overwhelmingly white state. we know that obama's struggling with white voters. a state obama won by ten points last time and keep in mind that means it's closer than wisconsin, pennsylvania, closer than a whole bunch and closer than nevada, states
. we show romney up by two. we have shown obama up in five polls, very close. >> sean: you are the only ones that have him up? >> most of the polls show it close. i think this is going to be a state that is going to be all about the turnout on election day. >> gregg:. >> sean: according to early voting, obama is not doing that well and romney is doing better. you wrote a column and wisconsin may be the new ohio. no republican has gotten to the white house except through ohio. if romney was to lose ohio but if he wins the other three states fh he wins. >> it is possible. that makes wisconsin a divisive state. if we go to to the early states, romney wins florida and virginia president obama wins ohio, then can romney wins a state that obama won by 14 points. >> paul ryan is very popular in wisconsin. >> there three things. state changed between 2008 and 2010 that helped walker. then a huge battle over walker's plan. the recall effort forced republicans to build a great organization that has been turned over to the presidential campaign. polls are very close. paul ryan is added to the part
. that is grouch by seven or eight points, president obama won -- there is a 16-point swing in many of these polls. is that the difference? >> it is the difference. if you go to some of the battleground states, independents by definition are going to pick the winner of that state. that is huge. i think the other thing that not talked about enough, generation gap. a whole lot of attention about the young voters. that are going to vote for president obama but don't know how many will show up. seniors are leaning toward governor romney and enthusiasm is way up compared to 2008. >> sean: if you look at the independents and add the intensity and you add new republican voters you have a formula for success, at least for governor romney. now, we have to go state by state. this is an electoral college vote. do you see a scenario in which romney would win a popular voted and lose the electoral college? >> it is possible. i think for that to happen, romney would have to win the popular vote by less than one point. it could extend a little more than that. >> sean: let's go to florida. interesting poll i foun
, obama seems to have lost ground in the fox news poll compared to the exit polls from the 2008 election. you are also seeing in an erosion among independent voters. fox news poll shows that the president no polling as well as did he in 2008. other polls show a much greater advantage for mitt romney among independents, as high as 19%. >> bill: yeah. >> among independence. how this plays out we will see. in the end we have wanier and probably have a few winners among pollsters because there are different techniques and different strategies that pollsters have used and we will see who was more accurate. >> bill: all right, now, we have four days left. and there is a weekend news cycle. and i'm going to tell the folks something that's going to happen because, you know, i'm clay viewpoint as you know. >> o -- clair viewpoint as you clair viewpoint as you know. the cbs radio went all over the country. cbs radio is a powerful agent. they were ecstatic about the economy coming back. >> happy days are here again. >> consumer confidence suspect. anticipating better unemployment number tomorrow. i
into a 2004 nail biter. look at the polls in ohio, today barack obama is almost exactly where george w. bush was in the polls in ohio 8 years ago. look at the job approval ratings, barack obama's job approval rating is almost exactly where george w. bush's approval rating is. the only thing looking better for romney at this point is obama is worse off in the polls. george w. bush had a 1.5 percentage-point lead going into election day and right now it is even. >> greta: rick what is the best thing politically that governor romney is looking at right now, when looks at this and what is the best thing politically president obama is looking at when they look at what is winding down between now and tuesday? >> romney looks at the number among independents and also looks at the possibility of building this national lead and i think closing on the economy. closing with what works for him in terms of making the argument he is the candidate of change. he has to hope for a big weekend to turn things around a little bit in terms of the close and i think president obama has to feel good about how thing
$50,000 a year. the other fresh ohio poll from the conservative-leaning rasmussen has president obama and governor romney tied. we'll go to cleveland and henry gomez. welcome inside the watch "the war room." >> thanks for having me. >> jennifer: you're welcome. who has the advantage, president obama or governor romney. >> you have to give it to president obama virtue of the fact that he won here four years ago, and his organizers never left the state. they were heavily involved last year about an issue to repeal collective bargaining restrictions that the republicans placed into law. >> jennifer: are you guys getting tired of seeing these candidates there every single day, several times a day? >> they're everywhere. as you mentioned the president had three events here today. mitt romney and paul ryan, i think just finished up an event down state in cincinnati, where there were huge crowd from what i'm told. tomorrow we're going to have a president here up here in the cleveland area, romney is back on sunday. paul ryan is here all weekend. and then on monday both campaigns are going to
. >> the polls in nevada, the last eight polls have obama head he which is staggering in many ways. this was a pretty red state until clinton won it in '92 and '96, but did he that with ross perot being on the ticket. and then obama won it by 12 points, and the demographics have changed considerably. it's much more of a latino state, and it seems like it will stay a blue state. it's still close obama on average just three points. the unemployment in nevada is just under 12%. in a sense the president shouldn't even be competitive. >> cenk: but the demographics are huge. >> yes. >> cenk: when we come back, the elbow of the day. i'll give it away, it's on an republican head. but whwhwhwhwhwhwhwhwhwhwhwhwhwhwhwhwhwhwhwhwhwhwhwhwhwhwhwhwhwhwhwh ?d
it even if the polls about even and even if obama has a lead of one or two i suspect the undecided votes are going to go to mitt romney. i have a pretty good feeling about ohio. and if he wins ohio, i think he wins and maybe president obama could feel the same way about it. this is probably the key state. >> greta: why do you all leave, ohio, and spread out across the country? why don't you all just stay in ohio if that is so important, got to get every vote there. >> because you got to make sure you win the others too. you have to make sure you win, virginia, and win colorado and win wisconsin and you win florida. florida you can't take for granted. florida is just as critical. maybe more in ohio. we all feel i think. >> greta: it looks like we have some satellite trouble. we have lost the mayor. we -- the governor, of course, you see on the screen here. just to give you sort of a heads up what has been going on in ohio today. westchester, ohio and this is supposedly one of the biggest rallies that governor romney has had as they sort of move into the closing part of this campaign. at t
